"Trot for Trans Lives" Orlando Finale

By Charlotte Robinson, July 25, 2023

The National Center for Transgender Equality in partnership with the TRANSContinental Run & with Pride Cup sponsorship is hosting a family-friendly in-person & virtual 5k run/walk “Trot for Trans Lives” on Saturday July 29th beginning at 8A EST. The in-person race will begin & end at the Luminary Green Park in Orlando, Florida. Orlando is the final stop for Cal Dobbs a transgender athlete who has been running across the southern United States spanning from California to Florida to raise awareness of the current challenges faced by our transgender community in today’s political climate. Dobbs stated, “This event & my journey across the country are not about changing minds. They are about showing love & solidarity to the transgender & intersex communities under attack in America, as well as for our friends, families, & the allies who support us. As an educator, I believe that the narratives of hate towards our communities are born out of ignorance & are not representative of most people. Ignorance is an invitation to educate.” Devon Ojeda, National Center for Transgender Equality Senior Organizer added, “Trot for Trans Lives aims to exhibit solidarity & compassion for the transgender & intersex communities that have been affected by the unprecedented surge of anti-transgender legislation introduced this year.” Dobbs concluded, “Trot for Trans Lives is about celebrating trans joy & community. It is about showing that we will not allow these ongoing political attacks to define or divide us. We are a resilient community that leads with love & spunk & will continue to live our lives with Pride!”
